Homemade Dinner Rolls Recipe

My recent, quick recipe for homemade dinner rolls, soft, fluffy and so tasty. One thing I may never get tired of, is developing new bread recipes. I can live off fresh bread, fruits and veggies, and be happy.

Fall season always brings me so much inspiration for comfort cooking. And for me the most comforting food happens to be homemade bread. Just the aroma of freshly baked goodness, is enough to create the coziness and warmth in my home.

This homemade dinner rolls recipe will be the first bread recipe for the Fall season, first not last. I have more bread recipes coming.

How to Make Homemade Dinner Rolls

In a large bowl combine all your ingredients (except the egg and sesame seeds)

Mix and knead to a non sticky, soft dough

Place the dough into lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic or a damp towel

Place in a warm place and let it proof, double in size

Put the dough onto a lightly floured work surface, punch out the air and divide your dough into 15 equal portions or as many as you like

It’s a good idea to use a kitchen scale for even buns

Form small balls and place on your baking pan, about half an inch apart

Cover lightly with a plastic or towel and let it proof for second time

You can choose to dust your dinner rolls with flour or egg wash, sprinkle with sesame seeds, before baking , I also made a few slashes (optional)

Bake the bread in 425°F / 220°C degree oven for 18-22 minutes or until golden color

Remove from the pan right after baking and place on a cooling rack

Allow to cool down 10-15 minutes and enjoy!
